I missed this interview CNN’s Rick Sanchez has Thursday with Michael Goldfarb, spokesman for the John McCain campaign. In it Sanchez asks about why voters should be concerned that Barack Obama was at the farewell dinner for Rashid Khalidi, and Goldfarb responds that Obama has made a habit of hanging out with anti-Semites. Sanchez asks Goldfarb to name another beside Khalidi and first he mentions Bill Ayers and then goes blank.

“OK ... give me No. 2,” Sanchez said. “Who is the other anti-Semitic person he hangs around with that we ‘all know about.’”

“Rick, we both know who No. 2 is.”

“Who? Would you tell us?”

“No, Rick. I think we all know who we are talking about here.”

Thanks for sending it along @ejrhee.
